Broad Spectrum SPF 50 O/W Sunscreen Lotion

This oil-in-water sunscreen lotion formulation is designed to provide globally broad spectrum, label SPF 50 performance. Olivem® LV Flex, the self-emulsifying biomimetic multifunctional ingredient, is the basis for a stable emulsion. Sensolene® and HallBrite® BHB are included to enhance spreadability and contribute to elegant emollience. Six person in vivo testing yielded static SPF 51 in an EU lab. In vitro analysis delivered PFA (PPD) ~22 broad-spectrum performance with critical wavelength 379 nm.
